  1. Portable Nanowire Platform for Quasi Real-Time and Ultrasensitive Detection of Microbes

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 19a

    In situ detection of microbial activity in submerged soils and aquatic sediments can be labor intensive and technically difficult, especially in dynamic environments where data on microbial status is desired. Current approaches for estimating anaerobic microbial activity involve incubating soil/sediment samples. Sophisticated analytical techniques are currently used which are not convenient and so ...

  2. High temporal and spatial resolution measurement of hydrometeor mass for automated assessment of precipitation rate and type

    SBC: Particle Flux Analytics Inc.            Topic: 20d

    The DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement program is engaged in long-term measurements at Barrow and Oliktok Pt. Alaska of precipitation climatologies and physical processes. The Particle Flux Analytics Inc. (PFA) Multi Angle Snowflake Camera (MASC) has been operating at Oliktok Point since 2015 providing the ARM community with unprecedented information about hydrometeor structure, size, and falls ...

  3. Ease of use and deployment for a fast, scalable data movement infrastructure

    SBC: VISUS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    In recent decades, High Performance Computing (HPC) has risen as one of the key enablers of innovation in science and engineering. However, industrial adoption has been impeded by the complexity and cost of deploying applications. Problems include the quality, speed, and flexibility of software tools and the specialized expertise required to adapt solutions given the profusion of hardware config ...

  4. Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral Interactions

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...

  5. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  6. Enabling scientific discovery from complex data at extreme scales

    SBC: PREMINON, LLC            Topic: 01b

    Statistical machine learning has had substantial impacts on many business areas, including finance, supply chain management, cyber security, bioengineering, and elsewhere – it is the core of companies including Google, FaceBook, TrueCar, and many others. However, extant tools for predictive analytics provide little or no insight into underlying processes. Hence, while machine learning has inargu ...

  7. Fast, Low Kerf-loss Wafering of Silicon Ingots for Low-cost Solar Power

    SBC: Nielson Scientific LLC            Topic: 11b

    Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...

  8. Biorecovery of Nutrients from Municipal Wastewaters with Co-production of Biofuels and Other Bioproducts

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 07a

    Nutrient pollution of lakes, estuaries, coastal areas and other water bodies frequently results in algae blooms, sometimes toxic, and often leading to anoxia, fish kills and dead zones. Efforts to reign-in nutrient pollution, in particular of phosphorus, P, have been lagging and noxious algae blooms make headlines almost daily all over the US and world. This is a problem attracting increasing atte ...

  9. Preventing Biofouling of Oceanographic Sensors Using UV Illumination Powered by a Compact Wave Energy Converter

    SBC: 3NEWABLE LLC            Topic: 13c

    Electrical power is scarce at most offshore locations, so oceanographers design buoy systems to consume very little power in order to reduce the frequency of ship voyages to replace batteries. These expensive voyages can cost several tens of thousands of dollars per day. Solar and wind power can recharge batteries, but harvested power is limited and each source has shortcomings. Wave energy operat ...

  10. Spectral Near-Infrared and Thermal Infrared Imaging for Advanced Estimation of Thermal and Geochemical Soil-Plant-Water Properties

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: 26a

    The spatiotemporal quantification of coupled hydro-biogeochemical processes between soil, plant, and atmosphere requires advances in remote sensing technologies and in understanding the link between the measured signals (ie spectral traits) and the hydro-biochemical properties While current UAV-based remote sensing technologies provide spectral reflectance in the visible- short wave infrared (VSWI ...
